Petr Cech wants to stay at Chelsea and fight for a first-team place despite the likely arrival of Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge, according to his agent.

The 32-year-old’s position as the Blues’ number one has been called into question in recent weeks, with Courtois set to return from his loan spell at Atletico Madrid ahead of next season.

However, Cech’s agent Viktor Kolar insists that the goalkeeper wants to stay at the west London club.

“Nothing changes,” Kolar told Aktualne. “He has two years left on his Chelsea contract and has an interest to continue there. [Jose] Mourinho did not tell him that he would not count on him anymore.

“We have not been given any signals that Petr would be made available [for transfer]. If that was the case, though, you have to realise that Petr is one of the world’s top goalkeepers and has a certain salary. There are not many clubs who could afford to sign him.

“If he were to leave, we’re discussing two or three clubs in the world. The situation has developed in a way, of course, but for now he is staying at Chelsea.”
